What is Drupal?
Drupal is both a content management system (CMS) and a framework that can be used to develop a variety of web-based software and business applications. It was created by a community of developers, as opposed to a company, and it’s open source and free to use.
Although perhaps not quite as well-known as some others, the Drupal CMS is a popular choice for thousands of websites. It’s a suitable for corporate business websites, e-commerce sites, and the like. If you’re looking for a CMS for a smaller scale website, then something like WordPress may be a better option for you.
Drupal websites boast a number of features that could be beneficial for you and your business, depending on your requirements. Just some of those features are as follows:
- Inbuilt tools – including sophisticated search, SEO friendly URLs, and a performance optimising caching mechanism
- Custom content types – you will not be limited to just creating pages and posts
- Granular user roles – complete control over user permissions, down to individual pages
- Development ease – ability to develop web apps without the need for programming
- Modules and plugins – over 16,000 existing ones to choose from, plus the option to create your own
- Integration – supports integration with a number of other applications and services.
